I just purchased a Samsung 59D550 3D Plasma TV. (Which I love by the way in 2d)

I also purchased a very clean Samsung BD-C6900 3D blu-ray player

I have the 3D Samsung glasses (me and wife)

I purchased "My Bloody Valentine 3D" which is suppose to have good 3D

(This all seems too much hassle to begin with, but here goes)

I start the movie, it gives me the option 2d or 3d, i choose 3d
Shows me one screen (not split screens), and blurry

I press the power button on the glasses, screen says glasses are connected.

On my TV remote, I press the 3d button, it shows me 3 images. Blurry, side/side, side/side/top/bottom. I choose blurry.

I watch the movie and it is blurry. Most of the things are outlined in Pink and Green. Some things are sharp at times, but most is outlined in the Pink/Green. Almost like a ghosting effect.

I tried going into TV remote tools, Picture then 3d and tried adjusting the Perspective and depth setting, but it only made things worse.

What the heck am I doing wrong here?

Now, I will say (I/ME) am not a good candidate to begin with cause I am older, can't see well out of one eye, and I am color blind. BUT, my wife sees fine and is not color blind, and she is my guide here, and it doesnt work for her.

As I recall, that DVD comes as a red+green type 3D, and it sounds like that might be what you got. That requires red-green glasses and displays on an ordinary 2D TV. It's not what you want.

You have the earlier anaglyph Blu-ray. You have to use the magenta/green cardboard glasses that came with it to watch it.

The newer disc made for 3-D TVs will have a large "Blu-ray 3D" logo.

Notice the different top borders (in blue). You want the one (on the left) that says Bluray 3D at the top.

Well, of course I guess I spent my money on the wrong one. First off, thanks for the reply .. Now - If I wanna get a REAL 3D blu-ray that I can use for a demo for myself and others for this setup, which ones would you recommend?

That decision I'm afraid, is yours, and yours alone. Peoples tastes vary so much.

I would however, recommend native 3D (filmed in 3D), and not converted 3D (filmed in 2D, post-processed to 3D). You'll find plenty of advice and help in the 3D content forum. Here's a start.
